Monastery Groundbreaking


Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Location: St. Scholastica Monastery
City: Fort Smith

The sisters will break ground at 2 p.m. for their new, smaller, energy-efficient monastery more suited to their present needs. Bishop Anthony B. Taylor and Sister Joella Kidwell, OSB, president of the Federation of St. Gertrude, will participate in the ceremony. The project will be funded by an ongoing capital campaign to raise $5 million. The expected completion date is late 2018.
